There is a difference with small donations compared to some organization
funding a specific goal. The former requires management of money and the
leftovers, the later is simply a contract of that organization (usually with
an interest in POV-Ray, i.e. for marketing) with specific developers for a
specific result. That is for example how POV-Ray got into SPEC, and how the
SMP branch came about.
